How does the probate process work?

Video Transcription:

In Maryland, when a person dies and they own any assets in their name, those assets would have to go through the probate process. The person who’s named in the will as the personal representative would have to open an estate with the court. The court would then issue letters of administration allowing that person to ascertain the assets and perform the functions of handling and administering the estate. The personal representative would have to file an inventory, which inventories all of the assets of the decedent and then subsequently needs to file accountings every six months until the estate is closed. Those are called administration accounts. Those accounts take into account and report to the court all of the assets and expenses of the estate.
